A connector is basically what the word describes – something that connects. 


Say you have a client that has a use case that wants you to save documents in their Sharepoint environment. You will somehow need to connect to sharepoint to do so. For that you would use a connector. 


The documentation also gives some examples of connectors. If you have any specific questions, you can ask them here of course.
